DIY Mixed Up Beads

DIY Mixed Up Beads - a fun project to go along with an awesome book! @mamamissblog #vbcforkids

Like The Mixed-Up Chameleon, our beads are a little mixed up – they are not quite sure what color they should be!

So why not be them all & just be – beautiful & full of changing colors like our Chameleon.

Our Virtual Book Club for Kids featured author this month is Eric Carle and the book picks are The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Tiny Seed, & The Mixed-Up Chameleon.

We chose The Mixed-Up Chameleon – it’s a wonderful & beautifully illustrated story… “The chameleon’s life was not very exciting until the day it discovered it could change not only its color but its shape and size,too. When it saw the wonderful animals in the zoo, it immediately wanted to be like them – and ended up like all of them at once – then it decides it is happy just being itself”

We read the book and then made some mixed up beads!

After the beads are dry, apply a layer of the gloss finish Mod Podge to seal the paint and make the beads nice & shiny!  Let dry and thread on your string.  Now you have a beautiful mixed up necklace with gorgeous mixed up beads.

There you go – a book, and a fun little craft to go along with it!
